It's not worrying me. I was just wondering.

It could be their metabolism?



My daughter is like my husband in that regards....always really warm when they are asleep....we have to keep a fan on in her room just to make sure she cools off during the night.

I have come to the conclusion that the waterproof layer in the mattress protector makes my baby's back sweat because it can't breathe. (hope that makes sense)

She sweats reguardless of the amount of clothes on or blankets and most of the time all she wears to bed is a onesie...my sister's son sweats n his sleep too.

The only reason my baby would sweat while he was sleeping is because he has too many blankets or clothes on...sounds like you might be overheating your baby a bit.

They shouldn't. She's getting over-heated and shouldn't be wrapped so much.

Is it perhaps the baby is too warm? Too many blankets, or dressed too warmly?

I found that I dressed my children the way I was dressed Everything went fine.
